Business partners Frank and Josh go bankrupt after their dot-com start-up collapses before it goes online.

This movie caught my eye mostly because of the actors in it, and partially because no one had written a review of it on Netflix. Heck, only 305 people had even rated it THERE, and only > 32 < here on IMDb.com, as of today 8/21/2005. Well, it IS a movie worth watching. But only if you have an open mind, you like independent films, and especially like dialogue-only movies. If you only crave the Hollywood blockbuster action flicks, this is simply NOT for you. Also note the R rating, especially for the language. This turns a lot of people off. But if you love the scenes in movies like Pulp Fiction where people are just standing around talking (and believe me, I am NOT comparing this movie to Pulp Fiction, nor is the dialogue anywhere NEAR the same level of perfection), but if you do enjoy a lot of talking, perhaps a little quirkiness like Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas or even Wild at Heart, then you might be interested here.
